** Don't forget our Anything Goes themed challenge is still open through February 3rd **
Hello friends. It's Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft. I don't get to post too often on the Cheery Lynn Blog, but you can head over and visit my blog for more fabby Cheery Lynn projects. I've been loving the pink this month and today I have a romantic card with a lacy open card front.
It's no secret that I love the frame dies. For this card I wanted a partial open card front so I created an A2 top fold card base and positioned my Honeycomb Frame die on the front of the card and ran it through my die cutter. For this particular die, it only cuts the holes, it does not cut the rectangular outline of the die. If you have one that does cut around the outside, you can just position your cutting plate so it does not cut that upper line where the top fold is. To adhere your image panel, you can just adhere it to the front of the card and then cut a panel 1/8" smaller for the backing and all the adhesive will be in between the two pieces.
I stamped my sentiment on ivory cardstock and used the Pierced Banners dies to cut it out. This die is dove tailed on one end and square on the other. If you want the dove-tail on both sides, simply cut it half way, then turn the die around and position it lining up the holes along the sides and cut the other half.
I topped off my image panel with a simple double-loop bow made with Fantasy Rose Diamond Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Sometimes an understated bow is the perfect embellishment.
